Shiva is the god of life and death, of destruction and rebirth. He is also a deity with many forms, depending on the needs of the world. For the artist here, Shiva is the inspired dancer, Natesha, fountainhead of all art forms.

Shiva's dance form elevated him to the position of Nataraja, a form wherein the arms whirled wildly, his flying locks crashed into heavenly bodies, and his steps split the mountains. We see Shiva dance over the body of Mahisa, who was eventually destroyed by Durga. In his right hand, he holds the trident, which represents the triad of the creator, preserver and the destroyer. The presence of the rattle drum is significant as it makes the final sound of death and produces the primeval reverberation of life. In his left hand, Shiva holds the fire that burns and destroys, yet illuminates and energizes. Shiva has snakes around his body, showing his power to deal with death and also to hold the sexual energy of Kundalini, the yogic serpent power. In the disheveled hair of Shiva can be seen the anthropomorphic form of river Ganga.

Ilda, Brazil
Our Nandi sculpture arrived today and it surpasses all expectations - it is wonderful. We are not only pleasantly surprised by the speed of international delivery but also are extremely grateful for the care of your packaging. Our sculpture needed to travel to an off-lying island of New Zealand but it arrived safely because of how well it had been packaged. Based upon my experience of all aspects of your service, I have no hesitation in recommending Exotic India.
